I am basically asking how to slipstream an application, I suppose. Please note that I do not want to combine these applications into a slipstreamed OS, but keep them separate on their own installation CDs--just like they came out of the box, only updated! Any help would be appreciated. Im asking specifically for programs I run on XP PRO.

You are looking for a program called WinInstall.

It builds differential-based installation images.

Thanks, I'll check it out! – user31272 Mar 15 '10 at 22:52
OK. I checked out Wininstall, that isn't what I'm looking for. It cost $1674.00! I'm a home office user and only need to do this with a few programs. Any ideas, anyone? Thanks. – user31272 Mar 16 '10 at 0:36
Ahh boo, there used to be a lite version that was only around $100. Sorry man -- thats the only program I know that easily packages things. – Nextraztus Mar 16 '10 at 14:21

as long as you have a decent level of computer knowledge and can follow instructions, you can follow the directions on Paul Thurrott's winsupersite. I've used it to create a number of slipstreamed win xp install discs.

Note: just substitute Service Pack 3 for SP2 in his article
